EDMONTON - A tattoo artist from Edmonton could soon enter the record books after inking 818 tattoos in a 24-hour period.

Diankh Lopez is waiting for confirmation from Guinness World Records that she has broken the old mark of 801 tattoos in one day.

Guinness needs to review photos and video before it's an official record.

Lopez didn't hit her original goal of 1,000 tattoos, but she says she's still extremely satisfied.

She raised almost $4,800 for the Edmonton Humane Society.

Lopez says she's had her eyes on the record for awhile.

"When I started my apprenticeship around 2009, that has always been in my mind ... and I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could do it," she said after her marathon marking session on the weekend.
